4726. HEZEKIAH NEWTON 4 (Isaac 3 , Daniel 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Isaac
and Sarah (Belknap) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there July 28,
1719. He died at Paxton, Mass., February 4, 1786, in his 67th year. His grave-
stone in Paxton cemetery is inscribed :

"Death is a debt to Nature due
Which I have paid & so must you."

He married at Southborough, Mass., September 8, 1742, Eunice Brigham,
daughter of Lieut. Nathan and Dinah (Rice) Brigham* of Marlborough -South-
borough. She was born at Marlborough, October 4, 1721, baptized at the church
there November 19, 1721. (The baptisms of both Eunice and her sister Dinah
are recorded as daughters of "Nathaniel, Jr.") She died, and an administrator
was appointed for her estate January 7, 1792. See below.

Hezekiah Newton lived several years after his marriage in Southborough;
the first three of his children were born there. The fourth child was born at
Leicester, and he probably lived there at the time, as he is described as of Lei-
cester in a deed dated December 27, 1748 [see Deed Book 27, pg. 287, at Wor-
cester, Mass.], by which Nathan Brigham conveys to him a tract of land in
Rutland. This land seems to be what became the family home, to which he
moved between 1748 and 1751, and the next six children were born in Rutland.
On February 12, 1765, a part of Rutland was included in the new town of Pax-
ton, after which date he is spoken of as "Hezekiah Newton of Paxton," where
he became a man of property and influence. Two more children were born to
him there and the older of the two baptized in the Rutland church, showing he
still held his membership there in 1765.

The following from the will of his father shows that he did not leave his
father's home at age with empty hands : "'As to my eldest son Hezekiah Newton
I having given him already great part of his portion, but I will give, grant to
him, his heirs and assigns twenty pounds, to be paid seven years after my
decease."

♦Thomas Brigham 2 (Thomas 1 , the immigrant), b. 1641; d. 1717; m. (1) Mary Rice;
m. (2) Mrs. .Susanna Morse of Watertown ; res. Marlborough, a prominent man there.
Eight children. The fifth was David 3 , b. 1678 (who m. wid. of Edward Newton 3 ; see note

he resided, his lands being set off to that town. He inherited the Bible, law book, cane and

524 NEWTON GENEALOGY

Mr. Newton's lands in Paxton were high but level and covered many acres.
Waehusett Mountain, not many miles away, was in full view. Here he built his
first home- house. The house has disappeared ; the foundations of it are in place,
now covered with grassy mounds and shrubbery. Some of the first out-build-
ings are still in use. A grand old elm near the site of this house bears a marker
with the words, "The true central tree of Worcester Co."

Later Mr. Newton built on another part of the farm another house — more pre-
tentious and more suitable to the numbers and needs and means of the family.
This second house is still in good condition and is inhabited.

Mr. Newton owned land in Royalston ; a deed for which bears the signatures
of his then living children and is in possession of tu"s descendants. This is, I
suppose, the 100-acres inventoried as "real estate in Royalston" in the settle-
ment of his estate. He left no will and his son Silas Newton was appointed
administrator of his estate. The papers in the case are here listed. An appeal
to the Court, giving the reasons for it, is here given in full. This is particularly
interesting on account of the name of the youngest son, "Bonter Newton a minor
under the age of twenty-one years." The officer of the Court who copied this
for me states that the name is clearly every time "Bonter," whereas the son
clearly signs his name to a deed in 1792 as Baxter. I am inclined to think
Baxter is what the other is intended to spell.

This old deed is dated June 9, 1792, and conveys real estate with buildings
thereon, of Hezekiah Newton of Paxton, to Silas Newton of Paxton, it being
the widow's thirds of Hezekiah Newton's estate; for the consideration of £20
to each heir; is signed by the heirs. The number of acres is not given. Those
signing are: Edmund Newton, Persis Estabrook, Mehitable Lamb, Ruth Stew-
ard, Nathan Brigham Newton, Eunice Davis, Elizabeth Richardson, Catherine
Craigie, Baxter Newton, Hezekiah Newton, Jr.
